Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer Philadelphia
Defending cases against the U.S. government is a challenging and time-consuming effort. Anyone charged with a criminal offense by the Federal government will face an uphill battle against the full weight and resources of the federal government. This is why it is extremely important to hire a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with and can defend against the federal government. At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our Criminal Defense Attorneys have appeared in and tried jury cases in federal court, and can aggressively and effectively defend you against the U.S. Government.
Learning about an Investigation
Most people will learn they are the target of a federal investigation when they receive a telephone call from a federal agent, a target letter, or, even more frighteningly, when agents show up at your house or job. When you’re contacted by federal authorities, your life can take a precipitous turn for the worse if you do not protect yourself. Once you’ve been contacted by the U.S. government, they will have already conducted an extensive investigation into whatever crime they believe you committed, and are looking for confirmation of their belief.
How Serious Is Federal Prosecution?
Federal prosecution is one of the most serious criminal prosecutions levied against you. The government has almost unlimited resources to prosecute you, and will use them if they believe you committed a crime. Federal sentences can be steep – you’re likely looking at years in federal prison. Luckily, the right attorney can help you avoid the most serious consequences of federal prosecution.
Should I Get a Lawyer if Federal Agents Contacted Me?
Anytime federal agents contact you, you need to get an attorney as soon as possible. Managing the case from the beginning will help minimize or eliminate any consequences. An attorney will be able to mount an aggressive defense, and apply pressure to the U.S. Attorney’s Office so they don’t charge you with a crime.
If you’ve already been charged with a crime, an attorney can pursue defenses such as suppressing (throwing out) evidence against you, negotiating a better plea deal, or even trying the case to a not guilty verdict, or a better outcome than you would have without an attorney.
